Meet our new Research Consultant, Rachel Brown
Rachel is a Research Consultant based in Christchurch. Rachel has over 10 years’ experience in agency recruitment in the Christchurch, Wellington, Sydney and UK markets.
Most recently and for over 5 years, she has been a specialist ICT agency recruiter, including establishing her own boutique recruitment agency.
Central to her success has been Rachel’s diligence in researching and selection of the right talent. This has increasingly been recognised as her specialist skill and something Rachel keenly enjoys.
With a diverse background across many sectors including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, recruitment, insurance, and media, Rachel has worked as an Account Manager, Sales Manager, Marketing Manager, company owner and Recruiter. Christchurch is her home town, and with the tragic earthquake events of 2011, she decided to return home.
In 2006, Rachel’s mother passed away from Ovarian Cancer, prompting her and her sister to found the New Zealand Gynaecological Cancer Foundation (NZGCF) to educate and support women and their families. Rachel remains committed to this cause and runs a support group for women with ovarian cancer.
Rachel is particularly interested in high performing teams and cultural fit and what this means for the individual both in terms of career and overall life satisfaction, and for the organisation in terms of performance and retention.
Rachel and her partner are very keen boaties and cruise the Marlborough Sounds every chance they get. They have a lifestyle property, and love being outdoors with their two Fox Terriers (terrors), Dotti and Wilson.
